Vinnie Paul with his band Hell Yeah had the crowd on their feet from the moment they stepped out onto the stage. These guys have been on the road, touring endlessly. Lead vocalist Chad Gray exudes massive amounts of energy and had the crowd wound up for their entire performance. Hell Yeah has amassed a huge following in the last few years.




Fans were given a rare opportunity to see King Diamond perform without his trademark make up. Diamond was told by his doctor to remain make-up free due to a severe eye infection. Fortunately for the fans, Diamond's voice was in top form with his extensive range in his vocals.
